We help people find ways of getting involved with these communities, so they can work together to build the future that Britain so badly needs.
There’s a political dimension to social change too. The Liberal Democrats are the only party that share our values, so they’re our go-to partner for campaigns in Parliament and beyond - but we’re open to cross-party initiatives also.
